    I have a sofa right up against the wall. The HT area will be roughly 15" x 15". One side is wall, the other open. If you're facing the sofa, there's a small window to the left of it. My dilemma is whether to go with ceiling or in-wall. Satellites are not an option as the only place I could put it would be right in front of the window. Not my first choice.

    Which route should I go? Also, will electrical wires cause an interference w/ the speakers?

    Thanks for your help!

    The in-walls in your situation, with the sofa against the wall, would need to be to the sides firing towards the sofa. It would not be good for the in-walls to be in the wall behind the sofa firing over the viewer’s heads towards the front of the room. So I guess in-ceiling is your only option.

    As long as parallel speaker runs are a foot or so away from the electrical, you’ll be fine.

    But if the speaker wires are not at least a foot from the electrical, but cross at a 90 degree angle, they should still be okay, right?
